Great Incentives for Saving Energy

Turn to the PUD for Deals on Heat Pumps, Weatherization & Lighting

Everett, Wash. – Take advantage of Snohomish County PUD incentives to save money on energy bills and improve your home’s comfort! The utility can help you with great deals on heat pumps, duct sealing and insulation, efficient windows, lighting and more. Heating and weatherization programs are available only for electrically-heated homes.

Heat Pump Incentives

Install a ductless heat pump this year, and you’ll get a rebate of up to $1,200. These units not only reduce your PUD bill, but they improve your home’s comfort by providing even heating and cooling. Customers can also receive $2,000 to $2,500 for converting from electric resistance heating to a ducted heat pump system.

Weatherization

Upgrades from single-pane to double-pane windows carry an incentive of $8 per square foot and $6 per square foot for upgrading metal frame double pane windows. The PUD also provides incentives, for upgrading the insulation level in your homes attic, floor, wall and ducts.

More Efficient Lighting

The PUD continues to offer discounts on compact fluorescent light bulbs and LED bulbs at a network of local retailers. More and more consumers are turning to LEDs, which are highly efficient and last up to 20 years. For local retailers, see http://www.snopud.com/efficientlighting.

Fridge Recycling

The PUD helps customers responsibly recycle old, energy-wasting fridges and freezers. Recycle your old unit and start saving up to $200 annually. The PUD will even come to your home and haul it away for free. To schedule a pick-up, simply call 1-877-577-0510.
